Stem Qal Passive¶
The Qal Passive is a passive form of the Qal stem. It looks similar to (and is sometimes identified as) the Pual or the Hophal stem.
The Qal Passive form is a stem formation in Biblical Hebrew that expresses simple action in passive voice. There is some debate among scholars concerning all the verbs that are parsed as Qal Passive, because they could also be identified as either a Pual or a Hophal. This distinction is not important for meaning or translation.
